  • Scott Young - How to Learn Anything

    Why I wanted to learn from Scott Young 

    I stumbled over Scott Young when I was doing research for my upcoming book “The Behavior Architect”, at that time I made it my mission to read all “habit” books that I could get my hands on, talk to the authors and share my learnings with you guys.

    Scott Young by that time already published several articles about habit formation and wrote the book “How To Change A Habit” that I found tremendously helpful. 

    One of the reasons why I started The Psychology Podcast was because I wanted to motivate people to discover learning as their superpower.

    Scott Young already did that, so I reached out to him in order to ask him how he did it.

    Scott Young is always in learning mode and over the course of his career as an educational entrepreneur has helped thousands of people to find strategies to learn better.
